We are EPOCH the Rock a local Fantasy based St. John's LARP group. We are basing ourselves on the 2013 rule system used by EPOCH Toronto.
Games are once a month running from beginning of May until the beginning of November.
EPOCH is a live-action roleplaying game set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting. Elves, Fauns, humans, and Orcs interact in a world where Empires and tribes fight for control of the world of EPOCH. Our game is set on the Isle of the Dead, or Annwm, which is an independent region of the EPOCH world.
The EPOCH rules are a point buy system that allows for any profession or combination of professions, so the players have total freedom when creating a character. Although warriors, bandits, mages, alchemists, bards and mystics exist EPOCH does not have a class based system.
EPOCH is a safe, full contact game with minimal contact and non-combat options for those who prefer less combat and more RP. Combat is played out with both foam-padded weapons, or “boffer weapons”, and manufactured latex weapons. Spells are represented by small throwing bean bags known as “mana". Fists are represented by a section of foam tubing. Players choosing to be non-combat can wear a blue headband.
EPOCH uses costuming and puppetry to represent high-fantasy races, fearsome monsters, and bizarre creatures.
